SRTS Project Identification Program

The ODOT Safe Routes to School Project Identification Program runs in two year cycles with the first round of services awarded in Summer 2019. The program provides a service to school communities to identify infrastructure projects that address barriers to students walking and biking to school in a newly-created local plan. Consultant services will be provided for up to 20 communities each cycle.

Consultant services will assist the community (school representatives, school community, and local road authority representative) identify infrastructure needs near one school or a cluster of up to three schools feeding into the same middle or high school, focusing on all streets within a quarter-mile of the school, as well as critical issues within a mile of the school. Consultant will coordinate and implement the Project Identification Program process in each community (up to 20 communities per cycle). 

The outcome of each Project Identification Program process will be a Safe Routes to School Infrastructure Plan for each school or cluster of schools that outlines general infrastructure needs to address barriers to students walking and biking to school and provides some information needed to apply for the ODOT Safe Routes to School Competitive or Rapid Response Infrastructure Grants.
